Textile workers in Philippines most vulnerable to new tech
Workers in the Philippines’ textile and footwear sector engaged in low-skilled and repetitive tasks are most vulnerable to advancements from the Fourth Industrial Revolution, according to state-run think tank Philippine Institute for Development Studies (PIDS). Most such workers are women, PIDS senior research fellow Jose Ramon Albert said at a recent forum.

As repetitive tasks can be programmed into computers and what is not codified today may be codified tomorrow using artificial intelligence, a PIDS press release quoted Albert as saying.

The tackle this gender displacement in future, the think tank is pushing for more training of women in technical disciplines.

It also stressed on balancing use of automation and pursuing labour-intensive activities to protect the welfare of workers. (DS)
